We did indeed, and very rightly so; do you by any chance believe that the Russians are not doing exactly the same to foster their own interests? And the result was that, after the ensuing free and fair elections, the Ukrainians decided that they had had enough of the autocratic Putin regime and wanted a more modern and western way of life, after the european model. First of all, it's their own decision and their right to live a free life; remember that they had been like slaves under the communist soviet regime for decades. Now, your argument about neo-nazis is completely absurd; that's the argument pushed by Putin and his clique in the Kremlin in order to indoctrinate and motivate their own people. Yes, undoubtedly, there were neo-nazis in Ukraine, and there certainly are quite a number still, but no more than in many countries in the world, including the USA. Moreover, the Ukrainians, who want to join the European Union, know that, among the many conditions they will have to fulfill before their admission, the adoption of western european values is essential, as is the fight against corruption that has been rampant in Ukraine, and is one of the legacies of the communist soviet regime and is still an institution, you might even say a national sport, in Russia.
